OBEY Barack Obama Comments | Mar 26 2008

I’ve seen Shepard Fairey’s Obama posters floating around the internet these days and its great that he is backing what he believes in. I just came across this Thank You letter from Obama to Shepard for the posters he has been creating in support for the next election. Shepard’s support led to the prints being sold on Obama’s campaign’s site.

Thank You OBEY

Shepard Fairey Interview Comments | Nov 26 2007

Shephard Fairey is by far one of my favorite artists and designers. While browsing Woostercollective.com I found this interview relating to his Rise Above Exhibition at Merry Kernowsky Gallery which runs from December 1 2007 to January 5 2008. Knowing where his inspiration and influences came from is from being a developing and growing designer to being involved with Obey, Studio Number 1 and Swindle and how he is now in a position to help and employ creatives.

Potential Trip To LA - Part One Comments | Aug 10 2007

Last night I went to my hosting providers website MediaTemple.net. I noticed that they were sponcering a multidicaplenary design lecture at the Getty Instatute in LA. The event is called QBN Sessions and is being put on by MediaTemple and Krop. Seeing that the lecture has speakers such as Shepard Fairey, Joshua Davis, Phunk Studio, Michael C. Place, Matt Owens & Mark Owens among others I felt it would be a great event to attend if ever I had the chance.

After thinking about it over night I felt I needed a vacation. Working all summer and saving needs to be rewarded. I showed my friends Jordan and Ryan and they displayed Interest. So low and behold I think were going to LA for a quick trip before school!

Being introduced to the travel site HotWire it was not so much of a worry on finances either. Some how the website is able to sell flights and hotels any many other packages for VERY CHEEP! For instance getting a room at the Hotel Angeleno Beverly Hills for a reasonable price to be centraly located, and cost effective flights out of Buffalo. The site offers a great selection for all travel destinations. The only think that is that they keep the exact Hotel name a secret until everything is paid for. However doing some research, and process of elimination will allow you to find what hotel you will be booking.

We are planning to go to LA from September 5 - 9 arrive back and head to school. There’s nothing better than that!

Here are some pictures of areas around LA. They just get me more and more excited.
